I’m very new to dynamo, but I’m working my way through some downloaded scripts to add parameters to a family… However, almost ALL of them require a node called Parameter Group (and/or Parameter Types) that the Archi_Lab package doesn’t seem to come with.
The package does come with Parameter Types/Groups nodes, but they don’t seem to be the ones that all these scripts are asking for, as the node still gives the error “Custom node definition is not loaded”.
currently, the dynamo script i’m using came from this post:
and I have all the packages required, including archi_lab, but yet that node always causes a problem.
I found a python script that I thought was going to do the same thing, from Konrad, but it doesn’t work.
Code for the Parameter Group node:
#Copyright(c) 2015, Konrad Sobon
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *
#Assign your output to the OUT variable
OUT = System.Enum.GetValues(BuiltInParameterGroup)
I’m very stumped. Is this code not what I’m looking for? Why isn’t the original node working?
My ultimate goal is to add parameters to a large quantity of families which are already loaded into a file, although if they need to be in a folder, so be it. The parameters MUST be family parameters, not project parameters because these families will be used by customers outside of a template or existing project.
